6th Sunday after Pentecost


Dom Giulio Meiattini’s commentary on the Instrumentum laboris.


The canonisation of Bl. John Henry Newman has been announced for Sunday, 13th October, 2019. A special website has been created to prepare for this much anticipated event: https://www.newmancanonisation.com.

Support for seminarians: as announced, Shawn Murphy and Hung Nguyen have been accepted as seminarians for the Institute of the Good Shepherd, and will be leaving for France in late August or early September to continue their studies for the priesthood at the Institute’s seminary in Courtalain (in the Diocese of Chartres). We are asking Parishioners to be generous in their support for the seminarians’ training. The Institute is relatively newly established (2006), and so has few financial resources. A dedicated fund for the support of our seminarians at the Institute of the Good Shepherd has been established, and we ask you to consider now what you can give. Both single donations and regular planned giving will be welcome. Details are available online on the Parish website, and in the vestibule.

Fr Mateusz Markiewicz IBP, Secretary General of the Institute of the Good Shepherd, will give a brief presentation today after Solemn Mass on the Institute, and will take questions. Please meet in Maryvale after Mass.

Classes: adult catechism classes recommence today (meeting in the freestanding classroom from 9.30 – 10.00 am); children’s catechism recommences after Solemn Mass (also in the freestanding classroom). Latin class is in recess and returns next Sunday, 28th July (meeting after Solemn Mass in Maryvale).

Please continue to pray for the success of the Newman Academy’s application for registration to commence in 2020, and for our continuing preparations. Applications for enrolment for Prep to Year 6 are welcome: https://newmanacademy.org.au

Please note that there will be no 10.00 am Mass this Wednesday.
